That title sounds like the last chapter of a boring mystery book. But this is not a boring mystery book. It is my new blog. Just in case you were wondering. (Though if I ever do write a mystery book–boring or otherwise–I promise you’ll be the first to know.) I picked that title because I wasn’t feeling very creative and because I just wanted to clear up a few things I left vague in my last post–which was, coincidentally, also my first post. Strange, no?
1. The genius, witty, oh-so-intelligent title I used is from “A Little Fall of Rain,” from Les Mis. Yes, I know pretty much every line of every song. Except the bad ones. Is that a problem? Twinsie 2 (I’m calling you T2 from now on. I hope that’s OK, ‘cuz you have no choice) was the first to correctly answer this, though my lovely friend “2sheepandallama” also knew. T2 also identified another song reference….though that one is a bit more obscure and needs its own post. Plus, that gives me something to write about later.
Bonus Points Score
- T2: 2
- 2sheep: 1.
The rest of y’all are going to have to work hard to catch up. But don’t fear! I have another super-fun competition planned!!!!!
2. How exactly did I manage to fit a cat into my room, let alone convince the school to let me keep a cat–and a rule breaking purple cat at that!!–in the first place? Well, in all modesty, I must admit….I have skills. Also, they don’t know yet. (I did learn this morning that one student acquired six ducks one year–to impress a lady friend, of course–and kept them in a dripping shower in the guys’ dorm. I’m guessing not for very long, however.)
3. Shoot. What was number 3? Oh yes. The Glasses of Shame. Yup, they enforce it! By walking around each table at lunch with said Glasses and distributing them to non-lei-wearing freshmen. One of the new students (a guy, of course) tested for us! Thanks! Though one of the other guys was also given a pair of these Glasses of Shame, having lost his lei–and he is keeping said Glasses of Shame in his pocket. Soooo, not much shame there.
4. Why is my cat not sparkly? Good point. I’ll add “glitter” to my Walmart list.
